Ceramic Face With a Bird + Stand, by Kimmy Cantrell. Original Price: $2,600
Design Plus Gallery presents the Ceramic Face With a Bird + Stand, by Kimmy Cantrell. With a focus on finding beauty within imperfections, Cantrell uses asymmetry to challenge the traditional notions. This particular mask features a bird carved over one eye. The colors are rich and varied, and each piece is made using clay and ceramic. A hanging cord keeps the mask hoisted on its stand. Minor wear from use; sculpture is in good condition.
*Note: Two matching ceramic face sculptures may also be available.
About the Artist: Kimmy Cantrell
“Kimmy Cantrell discovered his artistic vision in high school when he fell in love with clay in an art class. After his first hand-built vase was chosen for display at the local board of education, his teacher suggested he study art in college. Instead he decided to study business at Georgia State University and spent fifteen years in distribution management. In 1991 he accepted a job in Tifton, a small rural town four hours south of Atlanta. It was there, after almost twenty years, he decided to reconnect with clay. First there were vases, then bowls with faces, leading to clay pieced collages. The self-taught evolution of his art continues today.”
